Martin Place seems to be everyones stage at one time or another. Today it was the turn for this card flinging trickster.
He was good, able to flip and fling cards and have them land exactly where he wanted them. He was accompanied by his own entourage, filming his handiwork.
This was no ordinary “One for the camera’s” casino dealer, this was tricks. Being able to flip the cards between hands and fingers.
But card shuffling. It’s fast, skilful and mesmerising to watch. But unlike other dextrous pastimes (Freestyle Football comes to mind), there doesn’t seem to be much of a ‘circuit’ to compete.
As fascinating as the tricks are, he’d probably be the last person invited to a poker night.
